Covering the World

I found this the other day and thought it was pretty cool. I'm kicking myself for not holding on to the link to the site I got it from...

Speaking of the world, JH forwarded me this video last month and the visual keeps popping in to my head every now and again. The video shows yellow dots representing air traffic movement around the world over a 24 hour time span. At times life can seem so simple and our actions so primitive in nature. I like looking at this because it reminds me how small we are and how much we are buzzing around our own little organism of life.

*This version is a little too "Star Wars" for me but it's the only one that will fit in my blog without cutting off Asia, Australia, and New Zealand (all strong contenders, I think you will agree). You can view the slower, quite minute-long version here.

Subtle Changes

I know you're dying for another mural update - so here is a shot from last week. It's not as dramatic a change as last time but there are still wonderful features to be noticed: like the white added in along the top and the land on the world filled in, the pink pig at the bottom, and the red embellishments I can't make out as of yet. There are other things too, like the corn just to the left of the sprawling city, which I think is my favorite part thus far - I just love the curves in the road and the buildings. Though I do like the guitar and mountains on the opposite end.

Color and Shape

Wow was all I had to say after a three day weekend and not really checking in on the mural last week. This morning it was a surprise to come across so many colors and developed shapes in the easy morning light. Glad to see these guys are busy at work.
